Carl Spurlin Dekel, a 100-year-old World War II veteran, believes his service to the country to be one of the finest honours of his life, but he is concerned about the state of the country.
Dekel stated last weekend, through tears, that the country’s downfall will result in less chances and sad lives for others.
People don’t understand how fortunate they are, remarked the Silver Star recipient. What they did, what they fought for, and the lads who died for it, it’s all gone down the toilet.
Dekel concluded that they don’t have the country he grew up in, not at all. No one will have as much fun as he had. None will ever have the chance that he did. It’s simply not the same, and that’s not what the soldiers gave their lives for.
Nonetheless, his duty was an honour, and Dekel would do it again if he were of the right age.
The veteran said that the most significant thing in his life was serving his country. He doesn’t think there’s anything he could take away from it. They sent him immediately to Guantánamo, a Navy station, and assigned him to a machine gun company.
Dekel stated that it was an honour to serve his nation, and if he had to do it again at the same age, he would. He promised it.
Dekel provided words of encouragement.
One has to simply have to realize everything is lovely and live each day to the utmost. Simply appreciate everything you can, he said.
Dekel continued that now he is at 100. They say he is 100. Sometimes he doesn’t believe it since he doesn’t have to be concerned about his age. He is not going to, and will simply keep going.
Though the 100-year-old did not comment on what has particularly decreased in our country, the United States Military in general has been criticised in recent years.
For instance, in February it was reported that a former three-star general advised against teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the military because it would separate soldiers by race, reduce our “warfighting capabilities,” and raise the risk of “loss” on the battlefield.
“The tenets of Critical Race Theory – a cross-disciplinary intellectual and social movement that aims to assess the intersection of race and law in the United States, but has the unfortunate effect of dividing people along racial lines,” wrote retired Lieutenant General Greg Newbold, “undermine our military’s unity and diminish our warfighting capabilities.” “We damage cohesiveness and morale when we emphasise disparities or group identification.” Failure occurs.”
